Continental Line/1st American Regiment Charging No.2, 1777-87

Many of the officers of both the Continental Army and the state militias were typically yeoman farmers with a sense of honor and status and an ideological commitment to oppose the policies of the British Crown. The enlisted men came from the working class or minority groups such as the Irish, Germans, and African Americans. They were motivated to enlist by specific contracts that specified the period of service and a cash bounty. In addition there was a promise of regular pay, food, clothing, and as the war dragged on, the promise of land ownership afterwards. They were unruly and would mutiny if the contractual terms were not met. By 1780-81, threats of mutiny and actual mutinies were becoming serious, but the army held together and was victorious by 1783.
